Game day events
Teams battle for points and glory in events such as football throws, an obstacle course and much more! It's a day filled with camaraderie, fun and fierce battles, culminating in a Tug of War. End the day with a reception to announce the winners and a celebration with a refreshing drink, barbecue and bragging rights.

Tug of War
Teams of 8 will compete in a single elimination bracket format. Winning teams from each bracket will participate in the final tug of war at the end of the day. Teams to receive a first-round bye will be determined by fundraising.

Boston Children’s Hospital values gender diversity. Teams should be composed of people representing a mix of gender identities with no more than half of a team representing one gender in order to maintain equity and inclusion in the competition. This should be true for the team as a whole as well as any smaller groups put together for specific events.
